This was a treat from Michelle, and a fun one at that! Breakfast tea with oarweed, which, not being a marine life expert, is a completely new revelation to me.

Didn’t read any reviews before steeping, so based on the description alone and the hefty chunks of seaweed, I expected something somewhat fishy and very salty. Not so much. There is a hint of salinity, but otherwise it’s a good, thickish English breakfast tea with a little bit of sweetness and cereal at the end of each “ship.”
(First, that was a typo. Then I decided to leave it in, matey.)

Hahaha just roll with (the waves)

Sometimes the universe speaks to us through appropriate typos. I find this funny because I used to drive big ships for a living, not sure I’ve mentioned that before on this site? In my first career I was a ship’s navigator and I have been all around the world on cargo ships. Now I teach the weather to those mariners who still go to sea :)

Michelle: thats sounds unbelievably cool.

(This just makes me wish all the more I had my sister’s Ancestry.com info that linked us to a pirate!) Have you tried any of the other Cup of Sea varieties? Their little seal logo is pretty adorable.

Michelle: I haven’t noticed this (but I am much “younger” here), but it sounds very cool indeed!

Gmathis, I picked this up at a tiny grocery in small coastal Maine when I was visiting Acadia NP. I didn’t go back into that store again so I didn’t pick up their herbal tea. I was thinking that I need to search for some seaweed to add to my favorite Assam!

Michelle

Its been 18 yrs since I’ve been on a ship going to sea, so maybe that’s why I don’t bring it up. Everyone has a bit of backstory that we don’t always include here. I also didn’t drink tea in those days, for shame!

Nattie

That’s so cool Michelle !

tea-sipper

I don’t think you have mentioned this, Michelle! It’s a little like “Oh and years ago, I was an astronaut, I don’t think I mentioned it”. (To me it is, anyway!)

Michelle

Hahaha! tea-sipper you crack me up! I mean I never said I was ‘normal’ I do drink an awful lot of tea :)

Interesting tea concept…

It’s basically just black tea and seaweed. That’s this company’s whole “thing” I believe – seaweed teas. What fascinates me is that they use all different types of seaweed, and when you look at their website the teas sort of rank the “level” of seaweed taste present in the cup. This one is ‘low taste’ or something like that…

I’ve had seaweed in tea before – notably in Kusmi’s Algothe blend which I actually really love. You usually can’t actually taste that in the blend at all though; it’s more focused on the mint. With the only other ingredient in this blend being black tea, I found the flavour a lot more detectable. However, while it was present it wasn’t unpleasant. Kind of just a little bit of an extra savory/salty note in the cup? I didn’t realize just how salty until I drank a sip of something else and returned to my mug and then was hit with more of that “oomph” from the salt – but I do still think it’s a totally reasonable and drinkable cup.

Aside from that slight saltiness, the tea has a bit of a honey/malty note. I think it’s the honey sweetness that I was picking up on which really helped balance out the seaweed. It makes up like 20% of the blend, so that’s not an insignificant amount – all things considered this is well balanced.

My only other note is really that this is best consumed hot – once it had cooled down, around the last quarter of the mug, the taste kind of turned a bit funky and I struggled to finish the rest of it; just a bit brine-y…

Seaweed tea. Sounds neat.
